To answer the question “ can a hunting laser rangefinder be used for golf ”, it’s necessary to understand the work principle of laser range finders.
A laser rangefinder is a rangefinder that uses a laser pulse in a narrow beam to determine the distance to an object. Laser rangefinders all work using the same basic concept. The rangefinder emits laser beams at the push of the distance ranging button. Those beams bounce off distant objects and the rangefinder’s high-speed clock measures the total time it took from when the beams left the unit until they returned. Since we know how fast the beam was traveling (speed of light) the unit can simply use that time measurement to calculate the distance it traveled, and then it displays the distance to the user.
Thus, both hunting laser range finder and golf laser rangefinders share the same working principle and common ground.
By understanding what function needed for golf and hunting, then you could decide if a rangefinder can be used for golf and hunting. For a golf laser rangefinder, golf pinseeking scan, slope compensation are main functions for golf. While for hunting purpose, it requires angle compensated distance, height, speed besides basic linear distance function.
So you can use a single laser rangefinder for both golf and hunting as long as the laser rangefinder has the appropriate features and menu options for both golf and hunting. Not all laser rangefinders offer this versatility, however, so you need to read the specs, carefully.
